to discuss a possible drawdown with u.s. secretary general. for now, though the fighting continues. israeli air strikes killed nearly 40 people today, groups in gaza respondented by shooting nearly 100 rockets in israel. and on the israeli side of the border things appeared remarkably calm today. this picture has caused a stir online. it shows israelis watching passively as in-coming missiles sail over head. so why to israelis feel so comfortable out in the open as missiles fly above them? because of something called the iron dome. it's a defense system that uses radar to detect in-coming rockets and determine where they will land. if it is headed towards a populated area the gunner shoots the missile out of the sky. it is particularly good at detecting the smaller, older rockets that the palestinians use. iron dome has had an incredible 85% successful rate against the 300 rockets the palestinians have fired. the gulf missiles intercepted less than 10% of their target. iron dome has always made a huge difference. as of today, israel has only reported three deaths. in

these wonderful advance there is was no backlash. the republicans didn't use this as a wedge issue. they didn't run ads on it. they didn't bring it up at the debate. there was silence. it means that we as gay americans, we're wedge no more. >> eliot: expanding rights for gays and lesbians, and now it's the ballot box where the public by majority vote say we're believe in this conception of civil rights. it's a fundamental and very historic wonderful thing to see. there is this gaping hole in federal law. explain why it is still there and what we wanted to do about it. >> congress for many years have been dragging its feet on a very simple bill to bandies crime ban ban discriminating for being gay. we expect real progress now that president obama has been reelected in terms of an executive order that will ban the companies that profit from federal contracts. that's almost one in four jobs in america. this will be a huge step forward and we're expecting it pretty soon. >> eliot: now just so people can understand many states have passed laws that extend the rights that we're talking about. but

, and yet there are virtues that flow within the current of all of our lives that connect us, and surely chief among them is forgiveness. if we have the capacity to forgive, then we have reason for hope. palestinians and israelis who must at times feel they have not one thing in common they are feeling the exact same thing, hope that thesis -- the creasefire holds, and as connected as we all are we hope right along with them.

of of the drug policy action, the choice of us who care the drug wars is a choice between a disappointment and a disaster. romney from everything i can see, everything that he believes in and not flip flop on is the war on drugs. he could be the worse in the war on drugs since president bush. if the democrats take both the senate and the house, which is unlikely, i think we'll see serious movement forward. i think we'll see the emergence to evaluate the state of drugs in this country. we'll see more openings and inside and it's begin to go percolate, but i won't hold my breath for major reform. >> war on drugs success or failure. >> a monstrous failure. you look at people who are serving time. you look at mexico. it's about the failure of the prohibition. >> what is it about our inability to equate evidence with our own theology, our ideology, democrats and republicans who have held strung to this, being stuff in the war on drugs despite overwhelming evidence of failure. >> part of it, we managed to build up in america a prison industrial complex a massive one. i hope we don't have to wait

in american history. tomorrow, we'll open another. it's a story that continues to hold us in awe a government of the people by the people for the people. we come from factory and farm, from foreign lands where freedom in america are seen as in exorablely linked. we are connected in all manner of ways unseen. there will come a moment tomorrow between anxious and celebration, between hope and despair where this country will do something so rare and special that history has no precedent against measure it. it will once again defer to the will of the people who will freely choose who they shall be governed by and our remarkable story will continue. >> the fight is as old as this country itself, the battle for that most basic right of every american, the right to vote. the most contentious battles are waged in the swing states of ohio and florida. in miami this weekend voters waited up to nine hours to cast in person absentee ballots only to have election officials shut down the polls because they claimed not enough have resources or staff to be able to complete the job. one voter shut out after w

involvement in this. they're going to broker a deal. this has been a tradition of the u.s. to come in when tensions flare to work something out and hopefully a lasting peace not one that just lasts a couple of years. >> first thing that struck me when i saw that hillary clinton with benjamin netanyahu was it didn't matter that netanyahu backed romney. all of that time wasted, all of that money wasted perhaps. speaking today with netanyahu. >> president obama asked me to come to israel with a very clear message. america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid and unwavering. that's why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation. the rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside gaza on israeli cities and towns must end and a broader calm restored. >> so you hear hillary clinton there. israel saying some of the conditions that they want out of this cease fire would be having no more rockets fired out of gaza. soldiers patrolling the frontier would, in fact, not be attacked. weapons, stockpiles
any of us are surprised it was rejected. i think we're a little surprised, maybe a lot surprised it was put forward in the first place. this is really different. barack obama, this is a really different negotiating posture and position that he is starting from. if we look back to that horrible debt ceiling fiasco from last summer in 2011, i think we all remember how bleak that was that obama started his negotiating position really from a place that met the republicans more than halfway so he was going to be bound to end up meeting them in the final analysis. which is what happened. it was demoralizing. now, after re-election, he has been obviously very embowdenned. he's put forth something -- it is clear they won't accept it. they won't wake up tomorrow morning and think they want more stimulus spending. this is a strong move. >> eliot: it is exactly right. really, the president is almost moving away from the republicans because the stimulus package which he put into this, the tim geithner took up to the hill today has
washington university. thank you for joining us, professor. >> pleasure, eliot always. >> eliot: it seems so tantalizingly closer. a cease-fire was about to be announced. you've been through the process before. can you infer or suggest or understand what would be a sticking point at this late moment? >> part of this is probably one or both of the parties haven't got man they need out of current crisis. i strongly suspect it is probably on the hamas side where they're looking for assurances that if there is a cease-fire, there will be some relaxation of the israeli blockade and obviously israel is in no position to grant such a wish as long as there are rockets that are continuing to rain down on the israeli population. >> that seems like such a fundamental issue. do you think israel will agree there should be a cease-fire if it in any way relaxes the blockade. the blockade has been central to its approach to hamas. hamas is a terrorist organization internationally recognized as such. it would seem to me israel wo
and they're doing a trick where the democrats give us entitlement spending cuts instead. who is head of the republican party. a lot of people think it's john boehner. is it this guy right here? [ buzzer ] not him. a lot of people think it's grover norquist. is it grover? no not him either. [ buzzer ] so who is it? you got to understand, the politicians take their orders from their donors. and grover norquist is not the mr. donor himself. he funnels the donor money. who is actually in charge? these guys. this is lloyd blankfine and david coast, they're also on this thing called the ceo fiscal leadership council. what is that? that's a bunch of ceos who got together and said, all right no more being zealot, increases or any kind of revenue increases fine. but obama is offering an awesome deal. let's take it, it's over. they're sending their messages out to the republican senators and congress saying it's time to make a deal. this deal still kicks ass for us. we'll cut the living hell out of what we call entitlements, social security and medicare and medicaid. lloyd blankfein listen to
, folks, and he's not afraid to use it. here is representative jim chicago burn elaborate on the ground that theme today. >> us democrats ran with the president on this plan of his and we received democrats almost a million more votes than our republican friends did in this past election. so we think the time for posturing is over. >> jennifer: in fact, the president's plan itself demonstrates that he knows that he has a mandate. and believe it or not that large wish list is actually a gift to the republicans. why? because it expand the negotiating table so that the republicans can respond by rejecting pieces of it. the rejection of those pieces is like a gift to them. so how did speaker boehner respond? how did he react to that plan? he didn't thank the president that's for sure. >> first despite the claims that the president supports a balanced approach, the democrats have yet to get serious about real spending codes. and secondly, no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white hou
